    No practice round, no problem for Mickelson at Players

    Playing his first PGA tournament since breaking his major drought at Augusta, Garcia aced the17th hole at TPC Sawgrass - only the eighth time it has ever been done on the famous "Island Green". He hit the ball like garbage for the nine holes I followed, even with his 3-wood and long irons, which the top pros in the game say are the most impressive in the world.

    Change _ good and bad _ comes quickly at the TPC Sawgrass

    That was before he stood on the 17th tee at The Players Championship with a gap wedge in his hand, and watched his shot bounce in front of the pin, land just behind the hole and spin back slightly into the cup . I'd rather just get a nice practice session. The Players Championship isn't just golf's unofficial fifth major - it's also one of the most attractive backdrops on the PGA Tour.

    Isaiah Thomas loses tooth but Celtics win Game 1

    Washington jumped out to a 16-0 lead and was ahead 38-24 at the end of the first quarter but watched that lead evaporate in the second quarter and disappear entirely in the third as it was outscored 71-42 in the middle two periods.

Al Horford finished one rebound shy of a triple-double (because of course he did) with 21 points, 10 assists and nine boards.

  • More water on a new risk-and-reward hole at Sawgrass

    Birdie or Better % (BoB%): There are really not many weeks where we aren't going to target birdie or better percentage, because that's what fantasy golf scoring is all about. This may lead to a higher winning score as the average over the last five years has been slightly lower than -13. His wedge play has become so precise that Johnson has said it's already causing him to take fewer chances with par-5 holes.

  • TPC Sawgrass is a test for golf's best

    A hot and muggy day at TPC Sawgrass saw 82 double-bogeys or worse as most players finished at or around par in the first round of the 2017 Players Championship. "It was nice to see it bounce and kind of spin back into the hole, maybe because I needed it after the start I had". After starting on the back nine, Day had birdied the 11th, 13th and 16th to reach the turn in 33, before holing from 65ft across the first green.
